Shopping List: City Sneakers

While everyone I encounter in Los Angeles thinks I'm crazy for doing it, I have been walking everywhere around the city. A half hours walk to the mall? I've earned whatever I decide to splurge out on. An hours walk from Westwood to Beverly Hills? A bit of exercise with the promise of a Sprinkles cupcake at the end of it. However, with all this walking I really need suitable footwear, and with that I've been really thinking about expanding my chic sneaker (trainers, I may be living in America now but I have not forgotten I'm British) wardrobe...
Manhattan Lime Green & Grey Hi Tops: £212.99, Kennel & Schmenger Brown Leather Hi Tops: £198.99, Ash Bowie High Top Wedge Trainers: £154.99

I was just having a random browse at my local mall the other day, just seeing what was available (though while the Kate Spade iPhone cover I treated myself to was actually on my shopping list, I might also be guilty of a lovely new pair of J Crew shorts!), I really want to take some time to see what sort of shoes are available to me - I especially want to browse a bit more in depth in Madewell, though I'm not sure they do trainers? (At least I have my Ash pair for now, though!)

What are your favourite city shoes?

  1. They really look like the Isabel Marant version, i didnt know it made no sound. Heh, maybe i should get it! x

  2. Trainers are still my favourite shoe. Loving the Manhattan ones!

  3. i haven't gotten on this trend yet, not sure if its me

    Leopard and Lillies

  4. Good for you for walking everywhere. It's multitasking at it's finest because you are getting exercise and getting to where you need to be. Very cool sneakers. I'm not much of a sneaker girl (unless I'm working out) , but I like to see them on others.

  6. I love, love, love the Manhattan pair!

    Everyone used to think I was made for walking around in London but I think it's absolutely the best way to explore, plus like you said it cancels out the cupcake calories!
